Tracing Your Essex Ancestors
with the Essex Record Office
Monday, August 3 9:30 am-4:30 pm
99-101 Newbury Street, Boston MA
Since the 17th century, there have been strong connections between the county of Essex in England and the New World. But how do you research these ancestral connections? What records exist and how do you access them? Join Neil Wiffen and Allyson Lewis from the Essex Record Office to learn how to explore your English roots. This full-day workshop will include lectures, a demonstration of the website Essex Ancestors, and a special display of original records, including the parish register of Saffron Walden showing the baptisms and marriages of several Great Migration immigrants.
